Disaster Recovery is the topic everyone loves to hate. This session will cover some of the ways to take advantage of the cloud to improve your disaster recovery planning. Is cloud storage right for you? Can you leverage hybrid cloud to ensure your users can quickly get back to work? Can you increase the success of your testing plans?

You'll learn about technologies that help you bridge the gap between what you are using on-prem and how you can protect those assets by tapping into hosted solutions.

You will learn:

  • How to leverage the cloud as a hot or cold site for organizations that only have one physical location
  • How current applications, like SQL, have features built in to support cloud backup
  • How to use the cloud to practice and improve recovery testing
